This day four started early. The day before while headed to Bryce Canyon through Zion I had seen several photographers were lined across a bridge waiting for the sunrise to hit a certain spot on Watchmen cliffs. I was determined to get there early and stake my spot. Well as it turned out the throngs of photographers were not there and I pretty much had it to myself. It was a very colorful site with a sizable river under the bridge and made a soothing sound that I could sleep by. I waited two hours to get the shot I felt was best. Here is the that shot and the VR is here.
I took the morning off after this morning shoot to catch up on editing photos. I had read quit a few blogs about the Kolob Canyon Drive. It is only 12 miles with turnout vista points every 200 hundred yards or so. The photo at the top of this article was the end of the 12 mile trail. It is called Timber Trail overlook. The VR of this point is here.
Starting today at 5 pm I am taking a class with Matt Suess. Matt is the reason I am here. He is an expert of the area with Utah, Arizona and Montana (Tetons and Yellowstone). I took a class several months ago with him on a software package called On1 in Dallas and liked his approach to teaching and his zest for photography. I will be in his class until Sunday. I have a four hour drive to SLC to catch a flight back home at 3 pm. Matt's site is www.mattsuess.com
